Santa at Newbridge House and Farm
Santa's new HQ this Christmas will be Newbridge House and Farm in Donabate, Co. Dublin. Its a big responsibility as his elves can be a bit demanding but the team at Newbridge House are looking forward to welcoming the great man himself, his elves and of course Rudolph and his fellow reindeer and a big thank you to the deer down on the farm who will accomodate them in the deer park.
This year all the girls and boys can visit Santa in the gorgeous surroundings of Newbridge House, see the reindeer in the Deer Park (check website/reception on arrival for times when the farmers will feed them)and visit the beautiful living crib in the 18th century Courtyard. During your visit to Santa his elves will take you through behind the scenes in the House and show you where Santa answers your letters, eats with the elves etc. and there will be plenty of advise on caring for flying reindeer, successful letter writing, food for Santa and reindeer etc.
The House will be sumptuously decorated by Chelsea and Bloom awarding winning floral designer Christopher White.

Newbridge House and Farm regularly organise events to celebrate the breath taking beauty of the demesne and to introduce a wider audience to the many sides of Newbridge, from the huge variety of animals on the Farm, the gorgeous Georgian mansion, the state of the art adventure playground and the beautiful parkland. Below is a brief outline of upcoming events, more details will be added as they become available.
When visiting the farm remember the importance of hand washing if you have touched the animals and please supervise children when they wash and make sure everyone uses the antiseptic gel we provide. Please ensure children do not kiss the animals or touch their mouths with hands after petting the animals. We have provided foot baths for visitors and would encourage all visitors to use them. If you are pregnant or could be pregnant please do not touch the animals. We recommend visitors wear comfortable, flat shoes when visiting the Farm and take care when walking on our Courtyard as it has an uneven surface. We so want all our visitors to have a positive, fun and educational visit whilst still maintaining the highest standards of health and safety. We are very proud of Newbridge Farm as a working farm promoting compassionate farming methods and respect for all animals and sustainable biodiversity. Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to Newbridge Demesne.
